Five Questions About New World No. 1 Jon Rahm’s Equipment

When Jon Rahm became world No. 1 this weekend with his three-stroke triumph at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide, it should have surprised no one.

Rahm has been a world-class player since his junior days, holding the top spot in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for a record 60 weeks. Now he’s a four-time winner on the PGA TOUR and currently eighth in the FedExCup standings. It was only a matter of time until he reached an achievement that even his fellow Arizona State Sun Devil Phil Mickelson has yet to reach: the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking.

With more eyes trained on the top dog in professional golf – he’s just the second Spanish player to hold that distinction; the first was his idol, Seve Ballesteros -- it’s a good time to dive into the equipment that he uses. Rahm's bag is actually a very interesting case study, and it's in the simplicity that makes it work. Although the optics of Rahm's bag have changed a bit from time to time, the foundations have remained constant since his college days.
